Partyzanski district court of Minsk
filed by lawyers of presidential candidate Andrei Sannikau was dismissed.
The answer to the appeal signed by deputy chair of the Supreme Court Kalinkovich says “the case study carried out by the Supreme Court showed the conclusions of the first instance court and the court of cassation regarding Sannikau’s guilt of committing a crime provided for by part 1 of article 293 of the Criminal Court represent the actual facts of the case and are considered correct.”
The deputy chair of the Supreme Court mixed up the dates
of delivering sentence to Andrei Sannikau: 14 July instead of 14 May.
